Herona Hospital dental excellance
Our good friends and dental hygienists from the UK, Mandy, Carole and Carolyn not only volunteered their time, paid all their expenses, taught children dental hygiene, screened children, assisted Herona dentists with over 400 extractions and bought tooth brushes for many schools, they bought with them in their suitcases a lot of dental equipment.
